Paul Merson believes that if Arsene Wenger had Harry Redknapp’s tactical nouse, the Gunners would lift the Premier League.

The Sky Sports pundit does like to go against the grain, but his latest claim has left many Arsenal fans shaking their heads in disbelief.

The former Gunners midfielder baffled supporters by claiming the Frenchman should be more like Harry Redknapp.

Speaking on Sky One’s A League of Their Own, Merson said: “People say he’s [Redknapp] a wheeler-dealer and it’s so disrespectful.

“Tactically, he’s one of the best I’ve worked with. If Arsene Wenger had Harry Redknapp’s tactical nous, Arsenal would win the league.”

Merson recently took part in a Game4Grenfell charity match.

Arsenal fans have had their issues with Wenger. But none will forget what the Gunners boss has achieved during his spell in North London.

The Frenchman has lifted the Premier League three times, including going an entire season unbeaten. Meanwhile Harry Redknapp, who was recently sacked by Championship side Birmingham City has never won the trophy.

It’s fair to say Merson’s claim has confused Arsenal fans…
